Building Forts : a safe place for children

The Benefits Of Fort Building

Forts offer a quiet, private space for kids to process things that they may be thinking or feeling. Making sense of the world around them involves a bit of dowdowntime. Within the fort, a child is in their own space, and oftentimes, they can see out far better than parents can see in. Aside from being tons of fun and exciting to create, forts offer many developmental benefits for your child. Fort building goes a long way in creating a child's sense of independence and allows them the opportunity to fully explore their sense of creativity. The act of building a fort and being able to then hide out in one acts as a form of stress release for children, offering therapeutic benefits and opportunities for relaxation away from prying eyes.
